Stripes + Winter White

Sweater: Mango (similar), Pants: Ralph Lauren (similar here & here), Earrings: Image Boutique, Bag: Charming Charlie, Bracelets: Lex & Mila & Anarchy Street, Hat: Dynamic Asia (similar), Sunnies: Charlotte Russe, Shoes: Qupid

Crisp (off) white trousers are definitely a great wardrobe staple for the colder months. As much as you may be tempted to follow the "no white after Labor Day" rule, don't! White looks just as chic in the fall and winter as it does in the spring and summer. To put more of a fall spin on my trousers I added in a striped turtle neck, a burgundy hat and a matching top handle tote.

I hope you're having a great week so far!

Polka Dotted

Polka dots always put a smile on my face. I paired this pretty printed romper with over the knee boots and a royal blue cropped jacket to make it perfect for fall. A touch of red lipstick added an extra pop of color while a vintage belt gave it a little je ne sais quoi. Playful prints will always have a spot in my wardrobe. 

I hope your Monday is going great so far,  thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Weekend Staycation W/ Clarisonic

Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing Device, Essie Polish, Robe: Linea Donatella via TJ Max, Bedding: Custom,
Water dispenser: Pottery Barn, Bracelet: Ann Taylor, Earrings: Bebe, Candle: Voluspa, Towels: SocialStars, Toner Pads: Arcona
Happy Sunday! 
I am excited to be partnering with Clarisonic on today's post to share my go-to skin cleansing routine. After a long work week, there's nothing I enjoy more than a weekend in -- a staycation! This means lounging around the house in little makeup and a comfy robe and treating yourself to breakfast in bed, homemade spa water and a DIY pedi! I mean, no staycation would be complete without spa services. To get clean, glowing, just-left-the-spa skin, I turned to my Clarisonic electric face brush. For years, I was guilty of using a bar of soap and my hands to wash off my makeup, but once I started using this device before bed, I saw a difference in my skin within just a week! The Clarisonic Mia Two Facial Sonic Cleansing Device unglogs pores and leaves you with smoother, more radiant skin in just 60 seconds, making it perfect for any girl on the go! If you're a lover of Clarisonic like I am be sure to share your experience on social media using the hashtag #soniclove. 

I hope you had a great weekend!

Flaunt It Friday

Top: Sachin & Babi, Jeans: Target, Scarf: Zara, Sunnies & Necklace: Charlotte Russe, Bag: Fendi, Bracelets: Anarchy Street, Shoes: Bebe (similar)

It's back! I've partnered with Target on another "Flaunt It Friday" post. What feature am I flaunting, you ask!? My booty of course! In all seriousness, it's so great to sometimes celebrate ourselves a little. To highlight the positives and to stop focusing so much on the things that we want to improve. Since I know that I do have a curvier body type, I typically like to choose figure flattering silhouettes like a-line skirts. When it comes to denim, I know that the fit is key. For this look, I went with a slightly distressed style and kept things simple with a silky white top and an oversized scarf. My secret to looking slimmer while wearing skinny jeans is to wear a slightly longer top that covers my hips just a bit. This weekend, get out there and flaunt what you've got, because you're beautiful inside and out!

So Darling

Jacket: Darling Clothes, Skirt: Darling Clothes, Top: River Island, Hat: Katwalk Boutique, Earrings: H&M, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: Anarchy Street, Bag: Valentino, Shoes: Christian Louboutin (similar)

Matching sets are one of my absolute favorite things! They're so ladylike and are perfect for almost any occasion. Since I'm obsessed with midi skirts this set was particularly attractive to me. The thick fabric, mustard color and all over texture make it the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe.

I hope you're having a great week so far! Thanks for visiting!
